Issue Date: 02-05-2016
Issue: Mac devices are unable to play audio from a PowerPoint presentation created on a Windows machine. Macs require a plug in that must be purchased by the user. To ensure students can hear the audio in your PowerPoints we suggest converting your PowerPoints to MP4s and linking them to your Blackboard course using SharkMedia.
MP4 or MPEG-4 is a video file format that will play on many modern day computing devices. The below steps will guide you in exporting a narrated presentation to an MP4 video file in PowerPoint 2013. The file can be added to Sharkmedia using the steps found HERE.
